One of the best-known quotes from a victim of Nazism is that of Lutheran minister Martin Niemöller, who lamented having failed to protest the persecution of political leftists and Jews before being targeted himself — at which point there was no one left to protest on his behalf.

“It is easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism.” This quote, originally stated by political theorist Fredric Jameson and reintroduced in the 21st century by the late writer Mark Fisher, encompasses our modern understanding of our economic and political condition.

In a tragic September 2020 incident, Ricardo Muñoz, a 27-year-old diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, charged toward a Lancaster city police officer while brandishing a knife. The officer, fearing for his life, fired his weapon, and the young man died.
